Goulburn Valley Health – Shepparton Hospital redevelopment

Location 2/2-48 Graham Street, Shepparton, Victoria, 3630, Australia

The Victorian Government is investing $229.3 million to redevelop Goulburn Valley Health - Shepparton Hospital.

The redevelopment is delivering new and expanded facilities, ensuring more families across the Goulburn Valley can access quality medical care and treatment closer to home.

The project has doubled the hospital’s emergency department capacity, providing 44 treatment points, including nine short stay beds for patients who need care for less than 24 hours.

The redevelopment has previously delivered a five-storey inpatient unit including 64 inpatient beds, 10 intensive care beds, four new operating theatres and a new kitchen.

Local mums and mums-to-be also have access to the best facilities to support their growing families. The hospital has a 12-bed maternity unit, 10-cot special care nursery and a 12-bed paediatric ward included in the redevelopment.

Construction of the new five-storey inpatient unit and the first stage of the emergency department was completed eight weeks ahead of schedule following an accelerated program.

A single storey dialysis unit with 16 chairs has also been delivered, providing capacity to treat twice as many patients.

Construction of the new five-storey inpatient unit and the first stage of the emergency department was completed eight weeks ahead of schedule following an accelerated building program.

Final refurbishment and compliance works are now underway, with the redevelopment on track to be completed in late 2023.

Goulbourn Valley Health is the main referral health service for the Hume region. Its services include a 24-hour emergency department, surgery, medical services, women’s and children’s services, rehabilitation and palliative care, mental health, outpatients, services at Tatura and Rushworth, and community-based health programs.

The Victorian Government’s $229.3 million investment in Goulburn Valley Health Shepparton will deliver:

  • 64 inpatient beds
  • 10 intensive care beds
  • seven operating theatres (including four new theatres)
  • an emergency department with 44 treatment points
  • refurbishment of the nine-bed short stay department
  • a 12-bed maternity department
  • a 10-cot special care nursery
  • a 12-bed paediatric ward
  • a new dialysis unit with 16 treatment chairs
  • two new x-ray rooms
  • a CT scan room
  • an ultrasound room
  • a new kitchen
  • a purpose-built morgue.

A new integrated women and children’s precinct will be created to increase capacity and improve service efficiency. The precinct will bring birthing, maternity, special care nursery and paediatric services closer to the emergency department. Currently, they are separated by 220 metres.

A new single-storey building has already been constructed to house a 16-bed dialysis unit and construction of the new five-storey inpatient unit has been completed.

The Goulburn Valley Health Shepparton Hospital redevelopment aims to deliver the following benefits:

Improved facilities to meet growing demand

As the largest healthcare facility in the region, Goulburn Valley Health Shepparton Hospital provides surgical, medical, paediatric, obstetrics and gynaecology, intensive care and psychiatry plus extended care and regional services. This major redevelopment will provide huge benefits for the people of the Goulburn Valley and surrounding areas. It will improve facilities and access, while positioning the hospital to meet growing demand.

More surgeries

More theatres will ensure waiting lists are better managed and surgical capacity is increased, particularly for emergency caesarean sections and elective procedures.

Round-the-clock imaging

The expanded emergency department will deliver round-the-clock imaging, with two new x-ray rooms, a CT scan room and an ultrasound room.

New dialysis unit

A new single-storey dialysis unit will provide capacity to treat twice as many patients. The 16-bed dialysis unit features state-of-the-art equipment and provides increased privacy and comfort for patients and their families.

Quality care for patients

The new Goulburn Valley Health Shepparton Hospital aims to attract and retain specialist surgical expertise. This will ensure patients receive the best care and recover sooner, closer to home.

Jobs boost

The redevelopment will also boost Aboriginal employment as part of the Algabonyah Employment Partnerships program launched in 2016 by the Victorian Government.

This project is being delivered by the Victorian Health Building Authority, in partnership with:

  • Goulburn Valley Health
  • Billard Leece Partnership and Clarke Hopkins Clarke (architects)
  • Lendlease (builder, stage 1a)
  • Built (builder, stage 1b)
  • AECOM (services engineers).
